What is ARAT?
ARAT stands for "Amazon Reviewer Analysis Tool". The program is designed for hobbyist reviewers on Amazon.com to use, and allows them to quickly and effectively analyze data across their Amazon profile - and, to a lesser extent, across the profiles of other Amazon members.
Why was ARAT developed?
Kirk's wife is a dedicated hobbyist reviewer on Amazon.com. Reviewing on Amazon.com is particularly addictive because there are so many statistics that Amazon.com keeps track of for the reviewers: positive votes, negative votes, comments, reviewer rankings, and so much more. The problem was that a lot of that information is spread across multiple pages and can't be easily and quickly accessed in a stream-lined way. Ana asked Kirk to create a program that would extract reviewing data across multiple Amazon.com pages, and that program became known as "ARAT".

Is there a help manual for ARAT?
Absolutely! There's an online help manual for ARAT in case you'd like to browse the material before deciding to download. And the same help manual is provided in the ARAT program under the Help --> Contents menu option. This help manual was written by Kirk's wife, who writes user manuals in her spare time at work, and she's always open to feedback, suggestions, and questions.
We understand that a completely new program can be daunting to learn and use for the first time. If you have any questions at all about ARAT operation, please feel free to Contact Us and either Kirk or Ana will be happy to walk you through using the tool for the first time.
